On most occasions the line ‘prevention is better than cure’ has been used to emphasize the benefits or the importance of curbing a problem early before it becomes worse and unmanageable. Lifeline Screening offers painless and non-invasive procedures that aim at analyzing the performance of different body organs to identify any possible threats.
The most common procedure that is used for screening is ultrasound scans, or what is also known as sonography. Other procedures such as finger stick blood screening and limited electrocardiography are also used. As for the finger stick blood, only a few drops of blood are obtained from your finger for the desired tests.
Preparation for the screening solely depends on particular condition you want to be screened for. The tests do not require you to do an extensive preparation routine. Most of them only require you to wear clothes that are loose in fitting and the clothes should be two pieces. For the carotid artery disease, you should put on a shirt with buttons and not a turtle neck. For the abdominal aortic aneurysm procedure, you are required to eat four hours before the test. The meal should also be a light one.
While preparing for your screening, there are a few things that you should expect when you get to the Lifeline Screening Center. First, you will be received by warm medical professionals who will also treat you with respect and in a dignified way. You will get served within 90 minutes using state of the art technology. Lastly, your results will be well documented and thoroughly explained to you. The above named are some of the few things to expect as you go for your screening.
The benefit of screening cannot be overlooked nor can it be over emphasized. Research by Dr. Mohsen Chabok of Lifeline Screening has shown that early detection of cardiovascular related signs reduces the mortality rate from myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke by 50%. Thus, the screening is vital in saving lives. Diseases are detected early, making it possible to curb the spread and retreat it where possible. For the incurable diseases, managing them is easier when detected early, thus giving the patient more years to live.
